Perhaps I should point out, here in the moment: these are the days of making the largest gains in funds. Buying at a discount of 6% can get an easy gain on bounce back, in a matter of days instead of the 55 days it recently took to scale this mountain of stock value.
And if it can drop to 22,623 then the rebound can only be reasonably expected to be 5% to 10% of the all-time high, so buying at the end of Monday could still result in a loss.
But regardless, whenever the market hits the best bargain price, that is when the common trader has the greatest opportunity to grow their funds. Although this volatility is just noise, the potential for growth is far greater than days of a couple hundred point gains.

This was posted on 6 Feb. I should try to post it at top of page for convenience, since a lot of noise has been posted since then.

Their premise is that the real actual value of the Market is represented by Dow 15,000.
So then 26,616 is an actual overevaluation of 11,616 - or 177% of the true value. That may well be a historical record.
So if Dow goes no higher than that during this cycle, then a drop to 22,623 will signal onset of a Bear Market cycle. The rebound will go to about 23,954 - 25,285 range and then drop. A Bear Market drop always bottoms far below the true value of a stock, so the Dow would at this point bottom out around 8,000 - 12,000. The would represent a drop of 55% - 70%. Such a large drop gives investors plenty of time or range to recognize the drop and exit their stocks, before the bottom price is available to buy back in for massive gains - doubling or tripling your fund value. Unless the Libtard duplicates 2008 and keeps all their money in the Market until they've lost 60% of their life savings. So what are the Libtards panicking about? Their scenario provides the best possible outcome for their funds!

By comparison OTOH, if the Libtards are delusional and the Stock Market is the Real World, then a couple extreme possibilities can be presented.
One is that, for no reason, the current high of 26,616 remains the peak of this cycle. The drop to trigger remains the same as above, as well as the rebound range. But then the bottom would be more like 17,740 (67%) or we could hope for 13,300 (50%). The discount price for buying back in would not be as big of a bargain, plus the time of range of drop would be more brief, so exiting the fund would be more time critical, allowing for less dilly-dallying. And then the recovery gains would only be 30 - 50%.
The other possibility would be that the explanation for Obamanomics which I posted earlier in this thread are correct. The Market will continue to climb, for up to 8 years, before moving to Bear Market.
By that time most folk would have forgotten about Libtard delusional theories.

Another repost, for convenience. From 8 Feb.

This was posted 23 March, with the lowest close of the Dow in 2018, at 23,533.
Prior to 4 November 2017 the Dow had never closed higher than 23,516.

Today Dow closed at 24,834.


The within quote was from 6 Feb. Folk can't say I didn't provide the recipe in time.

Yesterday marked 19 days in a row over 26K, which is the most in history. Yesterday's close was at 26,430.


The Dow peak Close on 3 October was 26,828. So now it is 4.6% off this High.

The S&P 500 peak Close to date was 2,930.

The NASDAQ peak Close to date was 8,109 on 31 August.

If you are wondering if you can panic, we will know Bear Market is coming when the Dow drops 15% from it's All-Time High. That would be 22,804 Dow. That would actually be the most profitable scenario for Market Timers.

You'll have to be a bit more specific with that question because I don't know exactly what you're asking me.


Here's what I do know.

I'll get a 100% return on the first 5% I put in there beginning in November. This match is not vested until I work with the company for 3 more years after that. It's also not retroactive, so any additional money I put in this year will not be matched and it will only be on the first 5% going forward.

I have to pay SSI/MC on every dollar I make and nothing gets shielded from that.

Limits to how much you can put into a 401k in a year are nearly $3,000 more than I will make this year.

Anything over $12k will be taxed federally at 10%. Everything over $1k will be taxed at 4.8% for state and local. If I were to put everything over $12k in there from now until the end of the year, I'm looking at a tax savings of roughly $450.


My company match would only be a maximum of around $90 from when I'm eligible until the end of the year, and added with the tax savings if I put the rest of my money into the 401k would be about $540 earned.



The EIC won't be a thing for me this year. I was looking to see how much I could gain by putting the rest of my cash into the 401k for the year, but the EIC has a limit on both your taxable wages and your AGI, and it will be compared to whichever is higher, so even putting money away will still only net me a couple bucks here if anything at all.




If you have any suggestions, I'm more than happy to hear them.

Do Right, Be Right. :)

I have been trying to get back to this for 2 weeks, and I am sorry for the delay. I was not ignoring of avoiding it, but would have been timed better a couple days earlier.

I will try to get this all in one post.


You will need to look for 2 kinds of funds. Hopefully you can find 2-4 candidates for each of the 2 kinds. One family of funds I looked at for friends had been reduced to about 170 funds (from 450ish), and I found 2 of one kind and 4 of the other. IIRC none of those was in the category they should have been in.

Sorry, but you will actually need to evaluate each one, I can almost guarantee just reading the prospectus and summary or rating will not work. I have found some of the very best funds in the "Moderate" and also "low" risk categories. One rule of thumb (which you need to ignore) is that the most aggressive Growth is by definition more volatile and risky. The reverse is not true. Being risky does not guarantee high growth. Some funds just lose money all the time, and only being Classified as aggressive do they seem like the risk is worth it, but it is not, there is no correlation. Once you look at they like I explain, you will find the prospectus humorous on many.

You are looking to take advantage of a Bear Market cycle. The last one was in 2008, following a peak in October 2007 and ending the slide in March 2009. The last before that was 2001, following a peak in 1st Quarter 2000, then starting Bear around April 2001, and already at least 17% down before 9/11.
You need to know how well a fund is likely to, or you hope it will, perform in the next Bear Market cycle.
Many people will tell you that what your stated goal is, IS NOT POSSIBLE. It is called Market Timing, and today's Financially Illiterate Fiscal Professionals have been spoon-fed the mantra that Market Timing does not exist, does not work, will not ever work, no matter how many savvy Market Timers implement it each time successfully.
Standard Disclaimer is past performance is not indicative of future results. Which is technically and legally correct. But you and I both know that THERE WILL BE PROFITABLE FUNDS during that time. So, do you throw your hat on the fund which failed the last 2 times to perform predictably? Or rather choose a fund which at least did well before, with no guarantee that it will absolutely repeat the performance? If you look at 5 different funds which did well during the last 2 Bears, might it be reasonable to imagine that at least 3-4 of them will do the same again? Even if you cannot predict which one will not do as well, that still seems like a decent wager.
The point here is: if your candidate fund did not exist in 2007, you cannot reasonably consider it for your use. You need to evaluate a fund's performance during an actual Bear Market. Looking at how any fund has performed in 9 1/2 years of no Bear is not going to expose the information you need.
So the only time period you are really looking at for your evaluation is 2007-2009, and hopefully 2001 as well (that time frame is harder to find, many funds have ended, and others started in the past 17 years).
So, discard any candidate which was not around in 2007, no matter how well it performed in the past 9 years.

Now here is a very important detail. You should reread this until you are certain you get it - I couldn't believe how hard this is for so many to understand.
When you look at the graphs of performance, they will all look the same.
If you look at 5 different funds all starting in 2006, looking at the graphs right next to each other, they will all look the same. The same dips there, the same peaks here. That year they all did the same, the other year they all did the different thing the same. Only minor differences in the graphs, the bumps and dips.
But they are not the same, and you absolutely must understand the difference.
If one fund spanned a 5% range during the past 12 years, the graph makers will enlarge/expand the vertical scale until the graph fills the size of the graph window. If another fund spanned an 80% range during the past 12 years, the graph makers will compress the vertical scale until it fits in the size of the graph window. So these 2 extremely unrelated performances will look the same on a standard graph.
You MUST check the scaling. Do the division, write down the figures. If a fund share dropped $4 during 2007-2009, then if it's 2007 value was $80 it dropped 5%. But if it's 2007 value was $5 then that same $4 drop represents an 80% drop. You must get this info to properly compare, and you are dreaming if you think they'll do this for you - they want you to give them money, not find out any truth about them.
Reread that until you are sure you got it. Everybody tells me they got it, but soon I see they did not get it.

I hope this is making sense.

OK, the 2 types of performance you are searching for. One is the funds which hardly dropped in value during the Bear Market. The other is the funds which plummeted deeply during the Bear Market.

Reminder: 2007 Dow peaked at 14,000 and 9 March 2009 was under 6,000 - a drop of something like 55% from prior peak value. 2000 Dow peaked at just under 12,000 and bottomed out around 7,300 - about 44% drop IIRC.

The first fund that you hope to use. A perfect example is a fund which cannot lose money, even in Bear Market. You won't find one like that, sorry. But if you look at 2008 and the average fund dropped more than 50% but the fund you are evaluating dropped only 1%, then that would be preferable, right? Sorry, you won't find that either. But you should be able to find a few which dropped less than 20% while the broader Market lost over 50%. Anything with less than 20% loss in 2008, keep in your pile of candidates until you've gone through them all, and can get picky and winnow down. I've found some that dropped 5-10% in 2008, and hopefully you will too. Unfortunately, if your workforce is Unionized, these are the funds the Unions get rid of, to ensure the worker gets screwed.
Keep in your pile the 3 or 4 best funds of this type, if they dropped 20% or less. The last 2 times I searched for friends, only found 1 or 2 each time.

The 2nd kind of fund you are searching for.
Big drop in value, percentage wise. I have found some that dropped over 80% in 2008. You want to identify these with the worst drops, which are still around today (because they rebounded). Even better if you can identify 2 subgroups of this type. One had a steep, surgical looking cut, and fast rebound/recovery. The other had a recovery which was more gradual.
For the purposes of diversification (not putting ALL your eggs in one basket), try to corral 4-6 of these.

You want to have all this figured out and planned BEFORE you need to know it, and have your plan in mind, and give it time to settle in your mind, so you are comfy with the whole works.

Now, how to use them.
The 1st type, doesn't lose a lot in deep Bear Market, you put your money in now. I think you get this, but ask if you need more information. For diversification, spread your money around in more than one of these - like the most money in the fund which lost the least, but a decent chunk in other funds that only dropped 10-20% when most funds dropped 50%. Remember, we cannot predict what will happen with certainty, so don't get stuck with ALL your money in a fund which suddenly doesn't behave like you were hoping it would.

The Deep droppers. When you look at these, you will see that they rebounded, most did so completely, even if it took years. This is standard behavior. Once a stock or fund price gets to a high or peak value, everybody understands it will again return there, unless it is not diversified. Mutual funds have many different companies which are invested in, so unless all of those companies go out of business, the fund will recover (unless managed badly, which you should have discovered when looking at 2007 and 2001 on their graphs).
So when Bear Market hits, and the prices drop but yours from the 1st type doesn't AS MUCH, the simple thing is to wait for the bottom, and transfer your money from those funds into the deep droppers, at their most-discounted prices.

Or, you can do it in 2 stages.
Let us use a round number, for illustration purposes. You have 100,000 in funds, and are not adding or removing any from your Tax-deferred fund Family.
In the example I just gave, your starting 100K drops to about 85K, and you move to funds which dropped about 66%. When those funds recover to prior values, your 85K will have become $255,000.

In a 2-stage approach, your starting 100K is still down to 85K. This is done. No way to avoid it, without a Zero-Loss type of fund. But you are thankful you only lost 15K instead of the 50K that everybody else did.
So you noticed some deep droppers which were steep climbers on the rebound, and you move your 85K into a few of them, when their values are about 75% down (25% of their prior peak value). Within a few months, or more, these funds have done a steep climb, not all of the way, but to 75% of their prior value, before their steepness shallows out. We are not afraid they won't return to their prior value, but the steep portion is what we were using them for. So the 85K is now at $255,000 as we transfer money to different funds.
These 2nd stage funds have a slower or delayed recovery timeline. So let's say they dropped about 60% to around 40% of their prior peak value. And now they have gradually rebounded to about 50%. But you were in the other steep climber funds. Now you buy in at 50% with your $255,000. In the next year or more to come, that 50% value will return to its prior peak value (100%), and your money will be $510,000 at that point.
So you will have multiplied your funds by 5 if that was your plan and you executed it.

Does all of that make sense?
Most of these events stretch over weeks and months at least, so it's not like you need to precisely transfer on a specific day, or track the Market Index funds every day. I used to check about once per month. So in 2001 I saw that the Bear trigger had happened in April, but I didn't notice until May. Shouldn't be a big deal.


Also, most funds have a symbol, or abbreviation, that you can use to track the value. Maybe check it every day for 10 days, or then check once a week for a month, just to get familiar. Then only whenever you are curious.

So if you are looking for a stable trend to make money on, then confirm if this is true. Then you would buy in to a growth fund on Friday, Monday, Tuesday, and sell at CoB Wednesday.

Corporate America's Debt Boom Looks Like a Bust for the Economy

www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-11-19/corporate-america-s-debt-bo
om-looks-like-a-bust-for-the-economy


Despite strong incentives in the Republican tax plan for American executives to expand, invest and ultimately boost the U.S. economy’s growth potential, a lot of the debt companies are issuing appears to be motivated by something else.

A lot of the debt issuance looks like financial engineering rather than investments in assets that will pay for the debt in the future.

If the stimulus from the tax cuts does NOT raise the potential for the economy to grow, that’s a problem. Debt service is going up while the economy isn’t generating more dollars to pay for it.

More than half of this year’s money was borrowed to fund mergers and acquisitions and leveraged buyouts (LBOs), pay dividends, and buy back shares from investors -- in other words, for financial risk-taking rather than plain-vanilla productive investment.

Mergers and acquisitions don’t create new productive assets. They are a long-run forecast by companies that market share is better bought than obtained through growth or innovation.

Dow closed yesterday at 25,017.
The Trump bump got up to 26,828 last month. It is no surprise that Libtards and other math-challenged idjits like you cannot detect a more than 8% gain.
This month America voted to wreck the Economy, the Market, the Budget, the Debt Reduction, and Jobs.
Who knows why you are perpetually so confused, flummoxed, befuddled. Maybe lay off the Libtard Koolaid. You are acting as uninformed as the 18-24 year olds who came out to the ballot boxes this month but couldn't conjure how to fill out the Ballots written in simple American English.


That enclosed quote from me is from 7 November, the day after the Election, which was a day that I had pointed out always gains. As it did this year - yet another example of Market Timing. That day looks to be the greatest gain in the past 3 months for the Dow, so it was the best day to ride the Market to gain.

I heard MSM say that Black Friday had a 28% increase in Revenues this year.


I was busy, and forgot to mention that Wednesday and Friday sandwiching Thanksgiving are normally consistent in Market performance. I think the pattern is Friday almost always gains value, I don't recall if Wednesday's trend is loss for the day.
Sorry for the late notice (this year, but next year may be the same if Dems haven't Bankrupted America).

Well crud.

Tuning in my radio to my favorite program, I find it is not there today. Some bimbo about tech on instead.
Worried that Bob Brinker's suffered an ailment, I checked and found that after 32 years, he has decided to end his radio show.

He still does the newsletter and website, but those are just not the same.

Dow closed Wednesday at 25,366. This is 5.4% off the Record All-Time High.

The Markets have been a little roller coaster this month. With every news report of Dems Defrauding the Honest Election and stealing votes, the Market would drop drastically. With news of these Dem thieves being thwarted in their efforts by integrity-seeking reasonable folk, the Markets climbed.
Now most of the seats and the results are settled. On Tuesday the Dem threats that they would also steal the Mississippi Senate Seat were proven toothless. Since Friday's close, Dow has responded by rising about 1,000 points, or 4%.

Herez sumthing stokholdrz shoud worry about:

Creating additional investor concern on Tuesday was an inverted yield curve in Treasury bonds — where the three-year yield has moved above the five-year yield — a phenomenon that preceded all three of the last recessions.

Dow closed yesterday at 25,826. This is 3.7% off the Record All-Time High.

Dow closed today at 25,027. This is 6.7% off the Record All-Time High.

Dow hasn't closed this low since...5 trading days ago. Golly.
In 6 days Dow Rose about 1,500 points. And now drops some of that. That is some serious money to be made right there, but I did not partake.
Prior to 2018, the Dow had never ventured this High.

Next week is the Election. It was brought to my attention, but I have not confirmed yet, that the Stock Markets rise on the Wednesday after a Mid-term Election without apparent regard for which Party wins. So if you are looking for a stable trend to make money on, then confirm if this is true. Then you would buy in to a growth fund on Friday, Monday, Tuesday, and sell at CoB Wednesday.

This simple practice would be called Market Timing, which newly minted mush head Fiscal Experts say Does Not Exist, has Never Existed, has Never Worked, despite decades of success.

I looked at the funds I use in my Tax-Deferred account. For 2014, 2010, 2006 they all gained on the day after. Prior to 2003 the data is not available online.

In 06 there was 0.6%, 0.1%. In 10 there was 0.5%, 1.0%. And 14 was 0.2%, 0.7%.
No losses. So I'll be making a transfer tonight.

Dow closed Monday at 25,461.
On Tuesday at 25,635. All 3 major Indices gained more than 0.6% for the day.

Dow closed today at 26,180. All 3 major indices gained over 2.1% today.

Congratulations to all who took my advice and accepted some gains today. Another example of Market Timing. Remember, Market Timing does not exist, has never existed, and does not work, no matter how much money you made today off of the practice. (Yes, that was sarcasm)

I finally just checked the numbers on these 2 accounts.
One of them gained 0.63% on Election Day, and 2.1% on the Wednesday. The other gained 0.45% on Election Day, and 1.7% on Wednesday.
I now also notice that the next day the shift between them continued. The second one had been the stronger, more dominant for months, and on Election week they switched in comparative performance, and have remained that way since. Had I transferred out of the second (stronger) fund and into the first (comparatively weaker) fund the week before the Election, I would have made an extra 2%. But I wasn't paying that much attention at the time.

If only you coud no wich way its going befor it duz! Every litl dip and spike woud be money in your pocket!

The only pattern that seemz to matter iz that it haz basicly stagnated, wich duznt make sens if you think it reprezents real value. The only explanation iz that it iz being held up at an artificially hi level, and whoever iz doing it can barely keep it there.

Would you be thinking that if the government gave you free shares every year of an Index fund that invested in the S&P 500 or the Dow-Jones? The GOP would never allow it, but the Democrats have a history of giving away money to the poor. For example there is the Democrats and Social Security and the Democrats and the War on Poverty and the Democrats and Medicare. The GOP do their best to stop all Democratic programs and the GOP has been partially successful, mostly because only a minority of Americans are poor and the majority of Americans don't want to pay to help the poor. The majority votes for the GOP.

The War on Poverty: What Went Wrong?
By Ron Haskins Tuesday, November 19, 2013

President Johnson’s soaring rhetoric (“For the first time in our history, it is possible to conquer poverty”) is still inspiring, but his prediction that the nation could “conquer poverty” turned out to be false. It is true that poverty declined by 30 percent within five years of Johnson’s declaration of war in 1964, but there has been little progress since the 1960s. For the last two decades, poverty has averaged well above the 12.1 percent achieved when Johnson left office in 1969. For the last three years, the poverty rate has been at or above 15 percent.

What factors explain the difficulty we have faced in reducing the poverty rate? Some analysts think we could reduce poverty by spending more money on the poor. Of course, we could simply give money to the poor until they reach the poverty line, a strategy Johnson employed with the elderly. By increasing Social Security benefits, Johnson reduced elderly poverty to 25 percent in 1968 from 35.2 percent in 1959, a reduction of nearly 30 percent. Poverty among the elderly has continued to fall. In 2012, a year in which the overall poverty rate was 15 percent and the child poverty rate was nearly 22 percent, the poverty rate among the elderly was 9.1 percent. So giving money to the poor can reduce poverty rates.

Not sure if you were paying attention. That was the entire point of my post that the day after Election is normally a gain. It is pattern recognition.
Upcoming are days such as the day before Christmas, the day after Christmas, the last day of the year, the first trading day of the New Year. How did those days perform in past years? Did one of those days always go up? Always go down? Did that day go up on years of Bull Market? On years of Lame Duck sessions? On years when that day fell on a Monday rather than Friday?

If you see the pattern of what happens on target dates, then you will "know" what to expect that date.

Agreed.

I'll only add to this that it is not Capitalism at fault. It is Government (on both sides of the aisle) and Multi-National corporations in cahoots with each other and allowing us the illusory lie of Capitalism.

We live in a Predatory Capitalistic society.

Maybe there was nothing to be done about it and this was always the inevitable end to what was once a true Capitalist society?

Maybe, just like Communism, Capitalism looks good on paper but in practice they both end up with all of the wealth in the hands of a very small fraction while the rest of us fight for scraps.

I'm doing enough to get the matching contributions. It's basically "fun money" to me, so I'm gambling with it. There aren't many Americans on pace to making $15,000 in 2018 that are putting anything in there.

One would assume this is why a large company like the one I work for that doesn't otherwise really give two shits about its employees does something as "generous" as this. It's good PR to say that they offer it, but they know that most people won't opt in.



No. I don't think it's Bitcoin. Bitcoin is a fallacy of 1's and 0's, not too unlike the USD is these days.

401k isn't only backed by labor. It siphons off the backs of workers and makes the rich richer.
